I'm just going to go ahead and agree with the reviews I'm seeing of this book and say that it's beautifully amazingly wonderful.
Tommy was dealt a difficult hand in life. Because of his deadbeat parents he's had to take care of his seven siblings since he was a kid, pretty much forfeiting his own life. Dropping out of school at fifteen in order to take care of his brothers and sisters he's had to do horrible things just to keep food on the table. Not one for trusting others or ever asking for help he at first resents rookie cop Bobby barging into their life but eventually he starts to open up and accept Bobby's love though it takes a tragedy to finally see it.
Have you ever fallen in love with a book character? Because I have. I've completely fallen for Bobby McAlister <3 I've never understood why girls love a bad boy I mean the world is full of douchebags but a genuinely kind man is a hard thing to come by. I just absolutely love Bobby and not just for the fact that's he's a cop though that's a big bonus but because he's just simply a great guy, he's nice to everyone, he just completely loves Tommy and the kids and he sticks around even when Tom goes on his little tirades about not needing anyone. Seriously I Love him!.
I blazed through this book in practically a single sitting and that is extremely rare for me with full length books with my ADD I almost always get distracted by another book and end up taking weeks to finally finish so that in itself really shows how much I liked this book.
